Are you vacationing in Cocoa Beach? Maybe you’re in Orlando for the theme parks but wanted to see what’s outside the city for a day? Look no further than the Kennedy Space Center in Titusville, FL, just down the road from Port Canaveral. You’ve probably heard about this attraction along the Space Coast, where countless space missions have successfully launched. Maybe you have even seen a launch on TV or YouTube. However, there’s nothing quite like seeing a shuttle launch in person—and you can do just that at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.
Watch a rocket launch.
3…2…1… Blastoff! You will never forget the experience of seeing a rocket launch right before your eyes. We recommend that you time your visit to the space center around the launch schedule. Granted, weather and other unforeseen circumstances could change it, but give it a solid effort. You’ll be glad you did.
Discover more about space exploration.
The visitor complex is full of fun, interactive exhibits and activities for all ages. Find out more about the Apollo missions of the past or the Mars missions present and future. You can even meet an astronaut any day that the Kennedy Space Center is open for visitors. Ask your questions about space travel, and get firsthand responses. The complex’s IMAX theater also allows you to take a unique 3D look at Earth from space as well as other space experiences.
